Email sent to branch members 17 April 2023
We’re writing to you as Membership Officers about new events we will be running to help to support developing interconnections and relations within the branch.
- We will be holding a UCU social this Friday on 21stApril, 5pm-7pm, in The Library pub on the Hyde Park corner of campus.
We will then be running these every third Friday of the month, with the exception of August and January. Please put these dates in your diaries. This will just be simply an informal get together with other union members.
- We will also run a lunchtime, alcohol free social. We are currently looking into venues for this and will let you know. We would welcome suggestions for where we would not need to book for a specific number / would be able to bring our own food (for example staff rooms located centrally on campus). Please do get in touch if you have any ideas and we will be in touch with further information about this soon.
- We will be starting monthly ‘New starters: introduction to UCU’ coffee meetings. These will be online, the first Thursday of every month. The first is 12pm 4th May. We will circulate the link to this when we contact new starters each month to let them know, but if you have a *new starter* (they do not need to be members), in your department or service please encourage them to come along. The idea is that we will do a short introduction into what the union does and how it works and will answer any questions people have.
We hope that these sound like good developments and we really look forward to seeing you at the socials soon.
Kate and Xanthe
